Everything about this trattoria was fabulous. Delicious food, perfect service, and a very nice atmosphere. One of the very best (of many) meals we have ever had in Florence. Be sure to reserve a table ahead of time - we saw quite a few people...More

I called the restaurant for booking (there is a staff who speaks English very well) but you can ask your hotel desk to make a reservation for the restaurant.
